Catelynn Lowell is doing “a lot better” after spending months in rehab treating issues of depression and anxiety. However, when it comes to her husband, Tyler Baltierra, he may not be doing quite as well.
After Tyler posted a troublesome tweet about feeling “alone” and “empty,” his friend River Ceballos appeared on Radar Online’s podcast, Teen Mom Time, to discuss the possibility of the Teen Mom OG dad entering treatment himself.
“He isn’t opposed to it,” River confirmed. “I definitely think it would be beneficial. He does have a lot of unresolved issues from his past. Stuff he’s had to deal with — Catelynn, stuff at home, his father — that he’s had to put on the back burner. I could definitely see that in a good way. I think it would really help him.”
Tyler considered entering rehab during the latest season of Teen Mom OG. Then, after his father Butch entered rehab for substance abuse and Catelynn checked into treatment to deal with suicidal thoughts, he chose to stay home and care for his three-year-old daughter Nova.

Seeing this gorgeous woman & all the work she has done has given me such hope, a feeling of peace, and unconditional love that is hard to explain with words. It was a very emotionally intense Family Week Program, but I know that our love & commitment towards each other will persevere through anything this life throws our way. I’m so proud of you Babe & I can’t wait until you finally come home so I can just hug you & hold you for as long as I want. You are worthy…You are strong…You are beautiful…You are loved! Thank you for not giving up on your life @catelynnmtv #MyBabe #Soulmate #MyWife
While Tyler previously had to sideline his own needs, he may now have the opportunity to put himself first as wife Catelynn steps up for their family.
“I think therapy and rehab really helped her,” River noted. “She realizes how much stuff she really did put Tyler through. She has taken on his role. Things have definitely switched. I’m interested to see what he does with his free time now that the reigns have loosened.”
In other Catelynn and Tyler news, the Teen Mom OG couple is considering expanding their family just months after Catelynn’s tragic miscarriage.
“They do want to be parents again,” he said. “Of course the miscarriage was very unfortunate and it took a huge toll on both of them. But having another kid was always in the cards for them. That was always the plan. There is no rush because everything is fresh and new, but they definitely want baby number three.”
UPDATE: In response to our story, Tyler shared the tweet below.
I am not going to a rehab. I had a therapy appointment yesterday, I do Alpha Stim sessions & looking into EMDR therapy as well. Also, looking into a 7 day holistic spiritual retreat to reconnect with myself. Everyone has been really sweet about this & I appreciate it ✌?❤️?? https://t.co/SGhJ7CBrU9
